Thatmanmonkz is a renowned DJ, Recording Artist, and Producer, who has played alongside Carl Craig, Grandmaster Flash, Recloose, and Phil Asher, to name a few. Flat-sharing with producer Ross Orton (Arctic Monkeys, M.I.A) led to a crash course in studio techniques, inspiring him to join forces with Toddla T (Radio1) and form Small Arms Fiya. The pair collaborated on a number of releases and remixes, all received to impressive global acclaim.

After a brief hiatus 'monks has recently been busy producing, remixing, and DJing-including headlining at Kabal Warehouse Party, City Fly, Cargo, Tapped, Groovement Soul, and Boogizm, whist also compiling guest mixes for DJ Mag's weekly Podcast, The Graeme Park Show, Vinny Da Vinci's Urban Beat (Metro FM,SA), Rinse FM (UK), Deeper Shades of House (US), RTE Pulse (IRL), and Sleaze Beats (NED).

Since his debut Solo EP's, The Man and Overproof, the launch of his own Shadeleaf music, and 12"'s from his 'S&M' and 'Ex Presidents' projects. 'monks music has already received some high profile attention, including Radio One plays, and Support form Ashley Beedley, Mad Mats Karlsson, DJ Spinna, Rainer Truby, Jimpster, Laurent Garnier, and Osunlade amongst many others.

With Solo EP's due shortly on Local Talk and Fifty Fathoms Deep, and much more in the pipeline from his Shadeleaf Music imprint, his "fiya station" studio is a hive of activity. The opportunity to catch his unique hip-hop, soul, disco, and afrobeat flavored take on house music is coming….
